There have been quite a few exciting releases from drugstore brands as of late which have caught my eye. However, as I'm not too keen on paying inflated prices I thought I would just buy from overseas and get it shipped to me via a forwarding service. I've also been feeling a little uninspired lately so to cheer myself up I thought I would do a little online shopping (any excuse will do actually!). Oh and now that I have drugstore products out of the way, I'm leaning towards a higher end haul.. ahh if only money grew on trees. Anyways, hope you guys enjoy this quick little haul!
First up, I bought the Dirty Works Buff You Stuff Body Scrub not online but whilst doing my weekly grocery shopping at Coles. I've been eyeing out their products since their explosion all over the blogosphere and it was reduced to clear at $4 so I just couldn't resist. I will definitely be doing a comparision of this body scrub to my all time favourite scrub Soap and Glory Flake Away. Next, I purchase a new oil treatment for my hair as it has seen better days due to the rough winter weather. I bought Moroccan Oil which I've suprisingly haven't tried before only the Moroccan Oil Hydrating Styling Cream (which use to be a staple in my life) so I've excited to give this a try.
As promised in my latest empties post I went through a foundation craze and picked up 4 new foundations! In my defence these were wayyyy too cheap on online to pass up - I believe I purchase all 4 foundations for less than $25. I'm quite excited to try each foundations as I've heard many rave reviews about all of them so hopefully I will love them as much as others do. I picked up Neutrogena's Shine Control Makeup Foundation in 60 Natural Beige (I was initally going to buy the Healthy Skin Foundation but it would have been more suited for dry/normal skin types), L'Oreal Magic Nude Bare Skin Perfecting Makeup Foundation in 320 Natural Beige, L'Oreal True Match Foundation in W4 Natural Beige and Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation in 842 Medium Beige.You can tell my skin tone is all things beige.
And here comes the more exciting stuff - lip products. I purchase four of the new Maybelline Color Elixir Color Sensational Lip Lacquers for about $6 each from the US Target, which is significantly cheaper than Australia retailing for $17.95 full price. I also thought I would try the L'Oreal Colour Riche Balm as I've seen quite a few rave reviews about these guys - fingers crossed they live up to the hype.

If you're following me on instsgram @dugongss (shameless plug) you will already know I picked up the limited edition Tarte Rainforest After Dark Clay Coloured Clay Eye and Cheek Palette - I will be doing a first impressions and swatches post next week so keep your eyes peeled. I also jumped at the chance of purchasing a few Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Sticks on the US Target website as they haven't been released in Australia yet. And lastly I bought a back up of my favourite Maybelline Mascara The Falsies and I also picked up the newly released Big Eyes Mascara as I wanted to see what the hype was all about.

I hope you guys enjoyed this quick haul and let me know if you want to see more swatches/pictures or a review of any of the products mentioned.
